What do you mean by 'change in frequency of a gene'?

Asked by Ashish Kumar | 21st Mar, 2011, 05:50: PM

Expert Answer:

Dear Student,
Gene frequencies tend to remain constant from generation to generation when disturbing factors are not present. Factors that disturb the natural equilibrium of gene frequencies include mutation, migration (or gene flow), random genetic drift, and natural selection.

We hope that clarifies your query.
